I feel that I paid way too much for a dilapidated room. Old furniture, bathroom lights not working on one side, large ceiling stain over the toilet, I felt like I was going to fall through the bathtub while showering. The TV remote was dirty, yuk! Especially with a pandemic going on, remote should be Cloroxed! No daily room service. The bed was comfortable. It was quiet.
